Re: [1529] The needs of my story

Since there are story types, and we know Miho to be an analogue for a specific type, I would say there is reasonable presumption that there are other analogues for other types.

Re: [1529] The needs of my story

I would have thought not.

Again just impressions, but I see grandma as head of one family. Head ninja I see in the context of a larger organization, possibly across several clans.

Junpei's attitude seems to suggest different people.

Mugi certainly seemed rather triggered when Largo called her a catgrrl.

Hah! This went up just after I'd guessed that it might be a link back Sawatari Grandma. Ho hum.


Ta could be thanks (for bringing Yaku in) or from ta-ra (goodbye), or just a general dismissal.

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

The question in the previous comic about whether Mugi was Tokyo kitsune was likely strategic. She was trying to find out if she might be putting her Ninja family into a fight with the local foxgirl clan. The Himeji clan is far away and might not even come to Mugi/Yaku's defense given the poor famil...

Re: [1528] An old story that needs to be finished

<snip> P.S. I do wonder, though. That last look-over-the-shoulder from Miho… would she have a déjà vu to an earlier moment [936] when she herself called some other teenage kid a ‘monster’…? P.S. 2 This is not the first time [1491] we see Yakugashi’s response to that word… There does seem to be a wh...

If you abduct a kitsune child, is it kit-napping (twice over, even)?
What if knock her unconscious too? Would that be triple?

Re: [1524] 13 cm

I can't make out the sign clearly enough to be sure, but most love hotels also function as regular hotels. There are different rates for a "rest" and a "stay".

For those who have been saying "sleazeball", give him credit that his main angle is "are you OK"? In the unlikely event that he hadn't spotted the switch before, the super strength is a bit of a giveaway. I think he's a tad confused at this point, even if he knows who/what Ping is.

If we're talking wagons, I would have guessed one of these with "He-Man Miho-Haters Club" roughly painted on the side.

Re: [1521] Letting stuff happen

Rereading the comic, I had a sudden thought: NinjaGrrl and Yaku are going to be very good - maybe great - friends. Maaybe more than that, but serious, lifelong friends for sure. The Next Gen Piro & Largo? Not sure, but maybe. Or I could be totally off base. But it feels right, you know? Yeah, I get...

That is probably not helped by the existence of the English word coir, a type of fibre used mainly for mats and rope.

Well, Yaku may be a little sensitive to floozies, since her mother is one........
That's kind of harsh. What is your evidence of Mugis flooziness?
I wouldn't say "floozy", but sexually active at a young age, resulting in Yaku.
Inferred by forum consensus, but see [1354], esp last panel.

If you want to get really surreal, how about as Yaku re-writes Miho, Fred replaces some of the archive with an alternate version he's been secretly working on during the long delays?

Re: Ninjas and open-frame CRT TVs

Also, I think part of the ninja ethic would be that they were always careful and ware of their surroundings. Having hazardous stuff around shouldn't be a problem, and might be seen as valuable.

Re: [1516] A New Story

Ah, the clear objectives of youth!

I see no change in intent. She was just negotiating the entrance.

Is she right or left handed? She rummages and clicks the pen(cil) with her right hand, but then settles down to take notes with her left.

Re: [Your Input Wanted] Thread Timing/Organization

The current system works fine for me. GreyWolfe's suggestion is a nice-to-have, but not essential IMHO.

What I think is important is to keep each page's comments in the relevant thread. Spoilers in the n-1 thread are a no-no.
